We lost power about 7:30 pm on Friday evening as the storm came through.
When we peeked our heads out the basement door we spotted shingles in our yard.
First we were thankful all was OK, then we were worried that the shingles were ours.
We gathered our flashlights and once the storm abated we checked our house, then checked on our neighbors.
We all had downed trees and flying trampolines and trees in our swimming pools, but no major house damage and no injuries.
We don't know how far this piece had traveled.
A piece about the same size was planted in our backyard so far that we could not pull it out.
Knifed straight in, then broken over.
Someones fence in the street.
(Also from the newspaper).
Most of the damage was to roofs and trees, but in one small area about four houses were leveled.
On each street everyone just got busy. First working on their own places, then helping neighbors that were worse off..
We cut trees, picked up plywood and shingles and cleaned up our street.
Some are going to be inconvenienced for a while with damaged roofs and destroyed pools, but we were all able to stay in our homes Saturday night.
Here is their story.
Again, photo from the papers.
We were the lucky ones.
